Due to the Koc significant adsorption e.g. to solid soil phase is not expected. From the water surface 2 -mercaptoethanol will not evaporate into the atmosphere. The distribution of the substance between the environmental compartments was calculated by using the Mackay LEVEL 1 v3.00 programme. The standard environmental properties for the calculation are drawn from a publication of Mackay (2001). Due to the results of the Mackay LEVEL 1 calculation, over time the substance will preferentially distribute into water.
